Welcome, and may the peace of Christ be with you.
We are a welcoming congregation, sharing the love of Christ in the fellowship of faith and in our community. There is a place here for you, an opportunity to share your gifts for ministry.
The first active work done to build up Presbyterianism in Alleghany County, North Carolina, was inaugurated by Rev. W.H. Murray, an evangelist of the Orange Presbytery (a division of Presbyterian Church U.S.), in the summer of 1900.
Sparta Presbyterian Church is a member of the Salem Presbytery of North Carolina of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), located in the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic. We are called by God to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ in worship and service to the needy, and to promote peace and justice in the world.
We believe that God exists in the trinity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that Christ is the Son of God, that Jesus’ birth was miraculous through Mary as the mother of Jesus, chosen by God to bear His son.
